First impressions, it seems very cool. You can have up to 200MB local storage, meaning once you've downloaded a file, it appears in "Recents" and is available without having to re-download. It states in Settings/Local Storage that "Audio and video files are streamed and not stored locally".

Browsing seems much quicker than alternative iDisk apps I've tried, QuickOffice/MobileFiles, OneDisk, ReaddleDocs etc.

No advanced PDF features though unfortunately, i.e. no bookmarking, fast-scrolling or go-to-page functionality.

There's also a button next to each file to quickly share it, by opening an email with a link in it, and options for expiration date and password.

Thanks for the post! I wouldn't have seen it otherwise. I'm downloading it right now :)

ETA: It loads way quicker than the mobileme website interface :D

Am I missing something or is there no way to download a specifc file to your phone for quick viewing? I know there's a local storage option but that seems to just keep the most recently accessed 100MB worth of files (or whatever amount you set it to). I've been using MobileFiles and that offers the option to download specific files to your phone.

No option to download that I can see. It's as you say; keeps the most recently accessed ≤200MB worth of files. This is ample for my needs, but I could see how others might need more storage than this or a separate option to download specific files.

They need to add that - you should be able to choose which specific files you wish to download to your phone. Shoud be easy enough to add that functionality in an update. Seems like a decent app so far though and you can't beat the price.

Apple's MobileMe iDisk application for iPhone [App Store, Free], which has been listed as a forthcoming feature since Apple revamped its iPhone feature pages following its Worldwide Developers Conference in early June, is now available for download from the App Store. The application allows MobileMe members to easily browse and view files stored on their iDisk and share files with others via integrated e-mail links.
- View files on your iDisk
- Access Public folders
- Easily share files from your iPhone
- Quickly access recently viewed files
- View iPhone-supported file types-including iWork, Office, PDF, QuickTime and more. (Files larger than 20MB may not be viewable.)

How about you guys link to the original thread that FIRST posted about the release of the app*, instead of making forum members work as free journalists?

*this is the least credit you can give to the OP.
